How Silver Aisle Works

Silver Aisle is an all-in-one, online wedding gift registry; a first of its kind service for newlyweds and guests alike.
Our team frequently gets asked how we work, so allow us to walk you through the A-Z of Silver Aisle:
For Engaged Couples
Soon-to-be newlyweds can visit our website and sign up by selecting ‘Start Your Registry.’ During this process, you will enter details on your wedding and create an Access Code (more on that below!). Then, verify your Silver Aisle account via the link we email you.
Once you’re all set up, take a moment, and browse through your Silver Aisle dashboard. The main functionality here is, of course, Adding Items to Your Registry. Beyond that, you have the option to personalize your profile and add a photograph and sweet anecdote to your guests––if you wish––through the Our Story tab. If you’d like to find some wedding inspo or helpful tidbits on creating a registry, check out our Blog which hosts a selection of fun and insightful articles.
Now, let’s get straight to business! Start building your registry by selecting Add Items to Registry. This will direct you to our Brands page where you will find over 40 of Colombo’s most sought-after vendors. Have a favourite brand? Start there! If not, browse through our various categories, and when you come across an item(s) that speaks to you, select ‘Add Item to Registry.’ Every time you add will get reflected on your registry instantly.
Once you're done creating your registry, you can highlight the pieces you love the most by clicking on the little heart on the product tile. This will instantly filter the product to the top of the registry and signal to your loved ones what to purchase if they are undecided. One more thing––don’t be afraid to add high-value items like a fridge or an exotic getaway to your registry; any item above Rs. 40,000 is eligible for Pooling (you can learn more about it here).
Finally, at the point of mailing out your invites, enable the “Go Live” feature on your registry––this will enable your loved ones to access and purchase items from your gift list by using the Access Code you shared. Once you are Live, Silver Aisle will also ensure that all the items in your registry are placed on hold by their respective vendors (Tip: While you can start creating your registry at any point, we recommend finalizing your registry closer to sending out the invites so that you’re not missing out on our newest arrivals.)
As a guest, select ‘I’m Looking for the Perfect Gift’ on the pop-up that first appears, or ‘Find a Couple’ on the landing page and enter the Access Code. Guests will then be directed to the correct registry where can seamlessly purchase the perfect gift for you, or contribute towards a high-value item marked as ‘Eligible for Pooling.’
They can then opt to write a personalized note at the point of checkout, and proceed to pay online.
And that’s it, we take care of the rest!
